This is a truly terrible movie.
This is an awful movie. Truly badly done. The accents are horrific and the scenery is stock shots. Getty images probably made a fortune off this one. The terminology is all wrong. The moment I saw the actual scenery I knew it was filmed in BC. You would think that Canadian actors could pull off a credible British accent. Poppy Montgomery shocks me as she is an Aussie. Surely she could at least fake a British accent. This was SUCH a disappointment. I’ll bet J.K. Rowling cringed when this is brought up. No wonder its UNauthorized. Phew, what a stinker.
Too many cultural inaccuracies, poor quality – unforgivable
I can only concur with the comments made previously about the glaring misrepresentations of British life and culture in this film. I appreciate that biopics are an interpretation of a person’s life, but while that person is still alive some efforts should at least be made to show their nation’s culture with some semblance of authenticity. In the scene in secondary school Jo calls her teacher ‘professor’. I am only 2 years younger than Jo Rowling and teachers were never called that, they were either ‘sir’ or ‘miss’ or called by their full surname with appropriate title, e.g. ‘Dr/Mr/Mrs/Ms So-and-so’. The benefits office (benefits, not ‘assistance’) in the film was unfeasibly clean and tidy, I was a single mother at about the same time and dole (benefits) offices were always filthy, depressing places devoid of hope, and littered with cigarette butts and stinking of smoke, BO and despair. And the benefits officers never dressed like the Queen as the one in this film did. And your benefits book came in the post, it was not just miraculously handed over to you (although I appreciate that this would be done in the film for efficiency of time). But the biggest and most epic of fails was the line uttered by Jo’s father when she failed to get into Oxford University and he said it was because she went to a public school. That would be STATE school. A public school in the UK is a fee-paying independent school, over 50% of students at Oxford and Cambridge universities attended public school, they are considered the privileged elite, not what Jo’s dad was referring to which is the free public- funded schools paid for by taxation which something like 93% of British children attend. Aside from all that, it was a dreadful film. All the foreshadowing was really obvious and patronising. If you’re going to make a film about a living person pay more attention to the cultural specificities. I’d gladly be a consultant in these matters. Kate the celluloid pedant xx
